Champion Rear Solid Axle

Post by controlu »



I have a Champion solid axle trike kit on the back of a 2003 GL1800. The seals are leaking in the differential and the outer seals of the axle. I'm told that Champion is going out of business, I don't know, but there is no way to get a call back from them, that much I know. Does anybody know what brand of rear end they used back then so I can get parts? I know the disc brake calipers are late '70's Volkswagon but nothing else I see matches up to that brand.
Any help would be appreciated.

Most seals have part numbers and makers marks on them. Alternately you can take measurements and get them from a bearing shop.

Like Rambo says. The information you need is probably stamped on seal and bearing. Below is information that I've collected regarding Champion trikes over the years. Thanks for the update on Champion ... It's been a couple of months since I've had to touch base with them.
